Ballycumber GAA Club notes

December 03, 2019

Under 15 League Division 2 Final.

Tullamore 2—3 St Manchan Gaels 1—5.

St Manchan Gaels were unfortunate to concede a goal in the last minute of the Division 2 League final against Tullamore which was played in Ferbane on Sunday. Tullamore had already won the under 15 championship final and by winning on Sunday they completed the double. St Manchan Gaels can be very proud of their achievement in reaching the final and by only losing in such circumstances.
